official beta release but is microsoft going to realease both x32 and x64 ?
I mainly only play .wav files, good thing I haven't messed with any of my mp3s yet.
Technet has it now - public beta is friday.
Not sure about the 10min install time...but it is quick, even on my Q6600. If public will definitely be friday with new build #...might as well wait.
I don't think it's a new build number. I'm watching the CES Keynote now and it says build 7000 in the corner.. unless they just happen to be using an older build, I doubt it though.
Edit: If it is a new build it should be available to technet subscribers and will most likely be leaked by the end of the night - so keep your eyes open.
Check it out!
the build on technet is the same as the leaked versions, the md5 hashes match
Yeah, that's what I figured. Least we get a cd key friday. I'm downloading the x64 build now but it's going so so so slow
Same here, just started grabbing x64 one, should be about 20mins or so, if i will be able to do anything with it, will have to find out.
Saw it 30seconds into burning the 32bit version after giving up on waiting for 64bit lol
Not sure how necessary the "Burn at low speed (2.4x)" bit is, consider that a thing of the past, or cheap burner/cheap discs combo. :3eyes:
20 minutes? =( I'm downloading two and the faster one is only going at 22kb/s =(
90 seconds now :banana:
Use net can be a great thing, albeit a pricey thing lol
Will report back what i can.
I'll hold off til Friday and download straight from MS....lol
Even though Friday is technically tomorrow, im still too impatient, the quest to break/improve takes over, especially when I think those 2.5million will go quickly.
Off to give it a shot, even at 2.4x, didn't take long to burn
lol, good luck
Well good new and bad news.
Good News, install went well, not tried any drivers yet, but its very usable for driverless, and it is fantasticly quick.
Bad News, its the 32Bit version lol, maybe i missed something somewhere as it is 6am here now, or the one i grabbed isn't the x64 version :bang:
the 64 bit is on there, search for 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULXFRE_EN_DVD
:stewpid: thats aimed at myself
If ever there was a doh moment, realised what i did, as i had just burnt the 32bit one 20minutes before, when i went into burn the new one, i just clicked on the same image, stupidly not realising i had 2 Windows7 iso's now.
Right, more coffee, starting again
Rofl - my download just finished and the exact same thing happened to me.. I had the 32 bit ISO loaded up and suddenly realized it.. haha
So, got 64 bit up and running.. everything works fine here so far.
i just still wish i could figure out how to remove the History and Favorites sections from the address bar drop-down. Don't need them there...... that's what the History and Favorites pane is for!
